Al Jabal Al Akhdar(Green Mountain)
Al Jabal Al Akhdar rises to a height of 2,980 metres and it is famous for its wide plateau close to the summit. The journey from Muscat to Al Jabal Al Akhdar in A'Dakhiliyah Region takes about two hours and you can only travel by a four-wheel / quadra drive. Due to its high ltitude and unique weather, the Green Mountain produces a variety of fruits, such as apricots, plums, figs, grapes, apples and pears, as well as almonds, walnuts and saffron. The pomegranate that grows here is classified among the finest of its kind in the world.
Spread across the mountain are many Omani villages. Villagers have dug terraces in some parts of the mountain for growing crops.
Al Jabal Al Akhdar is known for its Mediterranean climate. Temperatures drop during winter to below zero Celsius, with snow falling at times, and rise in summer to 22 degrees Celsius.
